    Watched all their goals from that tournament earlier today, nearly all of them are outrageous. Sad that I will never be able to see a side play like that.

    Worst thing about World Cups, having to put up with **** referees from diddy countries.
    As opposed to **** refs from established countries?

    They all said "Hallo," and felt awkward and unhappy suddenly, because it was a sort of good-bye they were saying, and they didn't want to think about it.

    Yeah, family holiday. My dad never told my mum he got tickets to a few world cup games, only one I went to was the Brazil v Argentina game.

    My dad is a jammy git, was at final in 66 and 70 too.

    Wasn't that Italia 90?

    Other great moments from 82 that particularly stick in my mind were Gerry Armstrong's winner for Northern Ireland against Spain, Algeria beating Jerry & Tardelli (sp?) celebrating his goal in the final with an obvious expression of sheer bug-eyed, fist-pumping joy. Puts all choreographed celebs to shame. If I ever scored in a world cup final, that's how I'd want to go.

    Less great was Austria & West Germany playing out a 1-0 win for the latter that advanced both to the second round at the expense of the plucky, etc Algerians.

    Well bugger me, just checked and you're right, I seriously would have bet money on that. Not sure how my memory is so mashed on that one.

    The worst thing about the match (for me) was having to leave at the 65 mark to get to work on time. Still, I picked a 2 goal margin for Brazil, so off to a flying start in the tipping.

    Not sure where to post this, but this is such a good night/week/even month for sport.

    Ditto regarding Socrates.

    But so many great players - Eder was amazing, Falcao too.

    And their demolition of Argentina was possibly the peak of their performances. Absolutely dismantled a side that had won the tournaments either side of it.

    Arguably the most watchable World Cup in my life time. Either that or 1970, anyway.
